“The year has started out below our expectations. Following a strong start to the quarter with positive low-single digits comps through late March, sales considerably weakened in April as we encountered macro headwinds related to lapping last year’s stimulus and an inflationary consumer environment. We remain committed to our long-term strategy and are encouraged that our updated store experience, with Sephora at Kohl’s shops, delivered positive comparable store sales across these 200 locations for the quarter. We continue to expect our business to improve as the year progresses, with growth in the second half as we benefit from the roll out of 400 additional Sephora stores, enhanced loyalty rewards and further investment in our stores,” said Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief executive officer.

“Regarding our review of strategic alternatives, we continue to engage with multiple interested parties. We have formally communicated the specific procedures for the submission of actionable bids due in the coming weeks. We continue with our detailed diligence phase and are pleased with the number of parties who recognize the value of our business and plan,” said Gass.

Updated 2022 Financial Outlook

The Company is updating its full year 2022 financial outlook to include the following:

 

   

Net sales is now expected to be in the range of 0% to 1% as compared to the prior year

 

   

Operating margin is now expected to be in the range of 7.0% to 7.2%

 

   

Earnings per share is now expected to be in the range of $6.45 to $6.85, excluding any non-recurring charges

Process Update

The Kohl’s Board is thoroughly testing the Company’s standalone strategic plan against potential alternatives and has designated its Finance Committee to lead the ongoing review of expressions of interest. The Board engaged Goldman Sachs to conduct a broad process to explore strategic alternatives, which to date has included engagement with over 25 parties. Multiple bidders have been invited to a data room containing over 550,000 pages across over 55,000 documents, as well as meetings with management. While preliminary, non-binding proposals have been received, further diligence is ongoing and the Board has requested fully-financed final bids to be submitted in the coming weeks.

Dividend

As previously announced, on May 10, 2022, Kohl’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend on the Company’s common stock of $0.50 per share. The dividend is payable June 22, 2022 to shareholders of record at the close of business on June 8, 2022.


First Quarter 2022 Earnings Conference Call

Kohl’s will host its quarterly earnings conference call at 9:00 am ET on May 19, 2022. A webcast of the conference call and the related presentation materials will be available via the Company’s web site at investors.kohls.com, both live and after the call.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information and Non-GAAP Measures

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The Company intends forward-looking terminology such as “believes,” “expects,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “anticipates,” “plans,” or similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements, including statements regarding the outcome and timing of the strategic review process, are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, which could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements, and there can be no guarantee that the process will result in an agreement to sell the Company or that any such agreement will ultimately be consummated. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, risks described more fully in Item 1A in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, which are expressly incorporated herein by reference, and other factors as may periodically be described in the Company’s filings with the SEC. Forward-looking statements relate to the date initially made, and Kohl’s undertakes no obligation to update them.

In this press release, the Company provides information regarding adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share, which are not recognized terms under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and do not purport to be alternatives to net income as a measure of operating performance. A reconciliation of adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share is provided in this release. The Company believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with enhanced visibility into its results with respect to the impact of certain costs. Because not all companies use identical calculations, these presentations may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Q1 2022 Results 4


Q1 2022 Summary Key Takeaways • Q1 results were below our expectations. The quarter started off strong with positive low-single digits comp growth through late March, however in April demand considerably weakened as we lapped last year’s stimulus and as consumers started to experience inflationary pressures • Recent trends in May have notably improved as we moved past key stimulus weeks from last year and as the weather turned favorable, which has accelerated demand for our spring seasonal classifications • The 200 stores with Sephora at Koh's shops delivered positive low-single digits comp store sales growth for the quarter • The sale process is ongoing with due diligence entering the final phase. The Board has requested that the multiple parties submit fully-financed bids in the coming weeks Q1 2022 • Net sales decreased by (5%) versus Q1 2021 • Gross margin decreased (69 bps) compared to last year due to increased freight costs • SG&A expense increased 10.5% in Q1, driven largely by investments in key strategic initiatives, including Sephora store openings and store refreshes, as well as expenses related to the proxy contest and ongoing sale process, and higher wages and transportation costs • Operating margin of 2.2% in Q1 2022 with diluted earnings per share of $0.11 • Inventory increased 40% to last year due primarily to the investment in beauty inventory to support the 200 Sephora shops opened last Fall as well as the Sephora openings this year, higher in-transit and pack and hold inventory 5 5
